Vanderbilt hosted VMI on Saturday for the second of their two game series. The Commodores improved their record to 2-0 with an impressive 5-2 victory over the Keydets from Virginia Military. Sunday's game was rained out, but VandyMania staffer Katy Hamlett submitted these photos from Saturday's game.
